Let’s be honest: It’s not the best performance from Pratt, who had a tendency to talk over a clearly game Buffett, and even more disappointing is the fact that somebody didn’t replace the phone in Pratt’s hand with a lime-infused, frozen drink.

Either way, Buffett had the right idea when he said, with all the sarcasm dripping down the mic stand, “Chris has left the movie business and he’s going to be a rock star. Good luck with that one. Great career move.”
